A Gift for A Wish – Yayasan Chow Kit

I was invited by Seeties to attend Sunway Putra Mall’s ‘A Gift for A Wish – Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK)’ campaign. In conjunction with the festive holidays and in welcoming 2016, Sunway Putra Mall initiated this year-end campaign as a way to work together with the public to give back to the community. 

35 underprivileged kids, ranging from 7 to 12 years, were chosen for this campaign by YCK based on their backgrounds to have their wish for one gift to be fulfilled. The funds collection campaign spanned for one month, and with the contribution from the public, Sunway Putra Mall manage to not only purchase the desired gifts, but also the essential everyday items needed by YCK to take care of all the kids at their centre.

Surrounded by the remnants of Sunway Putra Mall’s festive decoration, the kids were greeted by goodie bags sponsored by Cold Storage, Kenny Rogers Roasters, The Chicken Rice shop and Dubuyu.

During the gift presentation, Sunway Putra Mall was accompanied by 60 beauty pageants of Miss Tourism Queen of the Year International which were specially bought in by TGV Cinemas to present the gifts to the 35 children.

This was as a platform to educate and promote tourism and cultural exchange amongst the participating beauty queens. The beauty pageants took the opportunity to meet and entertain the children with special performances to the children’s delight before posing for some pictures.  The beauty pageants love children and they also want to take picture with my daughter. They are pretty and nice.

After the gift ceremony, the children together with the beauty pageants were the ushered to TGV Cinemas for a TGV-sponsored movie - Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie.

They are treated to dinner at the Al Amar Lebanese Cuisine Restaurant after the movie. 

The buffet dinner spread at the restaurant overwhelmed the children as most of them have never had the opportunity to try Lebanese cuisine before. Let’s see the foods served at Al Amar Lebanese Cuisine Restaurant .

The night ended on a high note as all the kids left with huge smiles on their faces and satisfied appetite as they each left with the gifts and a new memory that they can hold on to. I enjoy the night with them as well. Thanks Sunway Putra Mallfor the lovely gifts. Well done Sunway Putra Mall!
